XML File Size & Memory

Hi All,

I have an xml file that is 63mb in size. If I were to load this file
into memory, will it consume 63mb of memory or will it consume more than
that?

Thanks,
Roshawn

That depends on how you're planning to load that document. If you are
loading it into an XmlDocument or an XPathDocument object then it will
consume more memory than the size of the file.

If you simply walk the document with and XmlTextReader then it will
consume less memory.

Hi all, I developed an web page in ASP.NET to upload file into the server.
